Tom Doorley: Why Crawford Gallery Cafe is worth a viewing

The restaurant at the Crawford Gallery in the heart of Cork has been a family favourite of ours for years.

This high-ceilinged, airy room with tall windows is one of the best environments for eating that I know and it’s a kind of common room – virtually a club, in fact – for people like us who drive for an hour or more to shop in the Real Capital. And there are lots of discerning Leesiders as well.


Crawford Gallery Café. Bright Palette in City Centre.

A touch of Spring about the scene in the Crawford Gallery Café  when I called there last Thursday. Light streaming through the high windows, daffodils on the tables, smiles on the welcoming faces. And a tempting menu to study.

The January menu is outstanding actually, regular favourites such as Steak and Chips but also quite a few different items such as the Roast Marrow Bone.
